In your classroom...virtually!

Starting in fall 2020, the Ecomuseum Zoo is offering you a great novelty: a virtual classroom presentation, featuring Québec's wildlife in a fun and safe environment!

The virtual offer is available for school groups, all adapted to the age groups that interest you.

The content description of the virtual presentation can be found below. If you have a specific idea, know that it is possible to organize a custom presentation for your students.

What is "biodiversity", and what does this term, so often heard, mean? How are the different animal groups connected? What is the food chain and why is it important? Why should we strive to protect and preserve biological diversity? So many questions! Let us help you tackle these subjects. With its diverse ecosystems, Québec is home to many different living organisms. Discover the bonds that link Québec's fauna and meet the animals that reflect the diversity of our wildlife: amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.
